Summary
This is the story of Mohun Biswas, an Indo-Trinidadian who continually strives for success and mostly fails, who marries into the Tulsi family only to find himself dominated by it, and who finally sets the goal of owning his own house. Drawing some elements from the life of the author's father, the work is primarily a sharply drawn look at life that uses postcolonial perspectives to view a vanished colonial world.
